    Hate to tell you but they've been making their equivalents of T-grain films for quite a while :-)

    Delta 100 & Delta 400, and Agfa APX100 uses similar technology

    Well Andrew, I certainly agree that there is no one so offensive as a Brit who is trying to be offensive. Luckily, for us on APUG your are a chap wrapped in warmth and charm.

    No, Andrew I am not looking for a date.

New products coming soon (less than 6 months) include a lith developer and a range of toners. Tim Rudman reports that other products are "under wraps". Ilford are apparently keen to encourage darkroom work and not just pick up the pieces from rival companies.

    Sounds very encouraging indeed.

    As Dr. Tim is an enthusistic lith printer, perhaps a new paper emulsion designed for lith printing is on the agenda of future products. I`ve heard that there may be two new print developers to be introduced soon, one a cold tone developer and the other a warmtone developer.
    A range of toners is of interest too.

    They will if there`s enough demand for it.

    APX100

    Ian-you really think that Apx100 is T-grain technology? I don't think so. That film is about as old tech as it gets and I love it for that. Someone else care to comment on this?
    Best, Peter

    I think the only T-Grain films around are Delta, Tmax, and Acros. Although Fuji Acros calls it Sigma grain. Which I would assume is pretty similiar to t-grain with it's own characteristic.
    Money is not the problem. The problem is, I don't have any.

    I use Tmax100 @ 50 ISO and APX100 @ 100 as it's a true speed and they behave in a very similar manner, except for Agfa's stop higher speed. I used AP100 prior to that.

    APX100 is the Agfa equivalent of Tgrain the differance is the ISO testing is more realistic as it's based on the Din method of testing film speed, which gives a true speed unlike the ASA method which tends to overstate the true speed.

    APX25 (discontinued) and APX100 are T-grain equivalents however APX400 is not.

    Me too. The thought of competition for TMax scares me to death.
